We encounter problems in all facets of our lives; at school, during our careers and in our personal and social lives. The ability to solve problems effectively with ease and confidence is incredibly valuable.
When it is such a prominent life-skill, why not expose children early on to the wide range of mental processes that form effective problem solving during the time period when learning is easiest?
At Shichida, we introduce and teach all the skills necessary for successful problem solving in age-appropriate increments through brain training games, puzzles, music and imagination play.
5 Steps of Problem Solving:
Recognise that there is a problem
Analyse the problem
Consider multiple options and select the best solution to address the problem
Apply the solution
Monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the solution
Skills we teach at Shichida for effective problem solving:
Critical thinking skills
Intuition and insight
Large working memory capacity
High EQ – being able to consider the problem from others’ points of view and being able to manage one’s own emotions and stress
The ability to visualise solutions clearly

Parents share their Shichida experience…
“My son joined Shichida when he was 5 years old. My husband and I are both very happy with his progress. Now my son is a happy, positive and confident child who loves and enjoys learning. After attending Shichida classes, we realised that the program not only benefits the child, but also teaches parents how to raise a child happily and successfully.”
– Miranda & Daniel (son, Shichida Graduate 2016)
“Thank you for the wonderful experiences that you have given Luke over the last 7 years at Shichida. The skills he has learnt through Shichida will last through his entire life. You have really helped and encouraged Luke to achieve such great things… Shichida has been such a huge part of our lives, we will really miss it.”
– Mark, Emily & Luke (son)
“I’ve noticed my daughter does remember things quite well, she can listen to songs only a few times and she remembers the tunes and the lyrics. She is one of the few kids in her class who can read at her age. Callum can count to 10. He sings the alphabet and he knows his colours and his shapes. He will sing along, it’s just play for him. There’s not that many programs out there for young kids, and you know why not? It doesn’t hurt them and they enjoy it. It does help them to develop to the best of their potential and their ability. They do an amazing amount of stuff in that one hour that I could not do at home with them.”
– Jane, Caitlyn (daughter) & Callum (son)
“Chloe has been attending Shichida Australia since she was 18 months old. I first heard about it on TV and thought it looked like an interesting program – mainly because it worked on skills like visualisation techniques, fine motor skills, confidence building and fun aspects of learning that didn’t seem to be offered in any other activities… This has really stimulated her learning, improved her concentration and helped her prepare for the transition to school. Shichida also gave us the tools to be able to incorporate opportunities for learning into everyday life – this has been incredibly helpful. The first time we realised that Chloe knew her numbers and letters was when my husband was out washing the car. He could hear her mumbling away and went to check up on her. She was just two at the time, and was reading our car’s licence plate!”
– Emily & Chloe (daughter)
